Method

  1. Butter and line a 20cm square tin with non-stick baking parchment. In a large bowl, combine the biscuits and nuts, halving any larger nuts. Melt the chocolate, butter and golden syrup in a bowl set over a pan of simmering water, stirring occasionally until smooth and glossy, then pour this over the biscuit and nut mixture.
  2. Tip the mixture into the tin, then flatten lightly – it doesn’t need to be completely smooth. Chill for at least 2 hrs or overnight before cutting into squares.

Made for presents .. very easy and didn't turn out too sweet for me. Used half and half choc and a mix of nuts and dried cranberries, wrapped them in cellaphane and ribbon and look lovely for gifts (very handy to keep in fridge and give out if you forget somebody!)

Would make again

Great and very sweet, next time I make it I'll add some marshmallows just to make it a little less dense.

It would help with planning if gift suggestions had a timescale indicating how long they will keep

Thinking of making these as Christmas gifts, how long do they keep for?

A very nice recipe and a great after dinner treat come Christmas. It is very sweet though.

Very easy and tasty recipe. I personally feel if you use too much dark chocolate it's too rich, so will use 2 bars milk and one bar dark next time.
